Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are excited to announce the official January 8 release of their forthcoming album, 'Signed and Sealed in Blood' via Born and Bred Records. The album is their second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show), which was recorded at Boston's Q Division studios and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes).

"We had such a great time writing our last album, Going Out In Style, we were excited to get back into the studio right away," says bassist and co-lead singer Ken Casey. "Where Going Out in Style was a concept album-kind of intricate and difficult-this one is catchy, fun, and as sing-along as can be."

Dropkick Murphys are excited to kick off the next leg of their Fall US tour, beginning on October 29 in Grand Rapids, MI. The band will play a number of dates along the West Coast and the Mountain States, including two shows in Canada. For a full itinerary and tour dates, please see below.

Dropkick Murphys--Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion, whistle, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals, bass guitar), Jeff DaRosa (banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, vocals), James Lynch (guitar, vocals), and Scruffy Wallace (bagpipes, tin whistles)--are touring in support of their critically acclaimed Going Out In Style and Going Out In Style: Fenway Park Bonus Edition CDs, both released via the band-owned Born & Bred Records.
